Paul,
I have never tried sculpting so couldn't find anything wrong to mention. I will say I think they are amazing and certainly show very much talent. Glad to have you at FM. We need great artists like yourself. :D

Very nice, to be able to take a formless mass and make something beautiful.

I'm also really impressed by the medicine man and others. The fine details in some of them like Celtic Sun and Morning Glory really give the stone a lightness that works so well. What got you started sculpting? Is it your favorite type of art to create? Welcome to the site ;)

Many thanks to you all for the positive reactions on my sculptures!!! Especially nice to hear them directly from fine artists on this Art-community. All the sculptures I make are sculpted straight-out of the head, while trying to use the form or curves which are already existing on the block of stone. I start drawing some lines on it when I see 'something'in it, and directly start cutting, chiseling, carving (taille-directe method).
All my life before sculpting, I was drawing, painting, decorating,illustrating, the last 13 years I survived as a Tattoo-artist,always trying to approach things as original / artistic as possible.
As a teenager, I was already dreaming about sculpting, because of the 'magical' effect sculptures and totems had on me. But the last 3 years, I made the choice trying to spend most of my time on stonesculpting, as much as possible. Thanks again !! Friendly greetings, Paul.

I think the sculptures are amazing too. I have only worked in soft material such as clay, so I cannot imagine how difficult it would be to use stone or wood. Welcome to the site and can't wait to see more work.

your work is amazing. it must be a difficult skill. do you have the idea before you start or does it evolve as you work on the stone?

Great work, I'd love to be able to do sculptures like these. I tried carving soapstone once, but I'm not going to pretend I was any good at it.

good question, Andy, just what I wanted to ask.
